Bombastic billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump, fresh off an impressive win in Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary, is making the talk show rounds today and delved into providing a glimpse of what foreign policy might look like under a Trump presidency.
Trump said that he would somehow “force” China to make North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-un “disappear” in “one form or another very quickly,” Trump said on CBS This Morning on Wednesday.
“I would get China to make that guy disappear in one form or another very quickly,” Trump claimed.
When asked whether “disappear” meant an assassination, Trump replied that “I’ve heard of worse things, frankly. I mean, this guy’s a bad dude.”
“And don’t underestimate him,” Trump continued. “Any young guy can take over from his father, with all those generals and everybody else that probably want the position — this is not somebody to be underestimated,” Trump contended.
A communist nation, North Korea, which does have strong ties to China, recently launched a long-range missile in violation of U.N resolutions banning ballistic missile tests.
“China has control — absolute control over North Korea — they don’t say it, but they do. And they should make that problem disappear,” Trump
The U.S. Senate will vote on applying more stringent sanctions wake of North Korea’s missile launch.
“I would force the Chinese to do it — economically,” Trump said, without going into further details.
It’s not every day that a leading presidential candidate openly discusses assassinating world leaders.
Trump, as expected, easily won the primary in the liberal state of New Hampshire, defeating RINO Ohio Governor John Kasich 35% to 16%. Ted Cruz, a constitutional conservative, came in a surprising third place, despite only spending $580,000 in the state.
